I'm not sure where the Daily Hampshire Gazette archives are kept, but I'm sure if you contact them they'd tell you where they pulled the old news story from. There also used to be a wonderful reference librarian at the Forbes Library (Elise Feely maybe? I can't quite recall her name) ... in any case, she seemed to wealth of information and would be able to point you to any local sources that might help you. Good thing the name is so unusual ... I would never have thought to google it otherwise ... and wouldn't have found your posting. Good luck ... although I have no Quance connections, I find this really interesting!
